The U.S. Supreme Court refused Monday to review lower court rulings overturning North Dakota's ban on abortion at six weeks of pregnancy – before many women know they're pregnant.Both measures had been struck down by a unanimous panel of three judges appointed by President George W. Bush to the St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.The Supreme Court gets about 7,500 requests each year but takes on fewer than 100 cases.North Dakota lawmakers set aside $400,000 to defend lawsuits arising from a spate of new abortion laws in 2013, and the Legislature added another $400,000 last year. Records obtained by The Associated Press show the state had used $320,029 to defend the abortion laws as of December, most of which was spent on the fetal heartbeat measure.
